Okay, so I was snoozing from my blog right through the heady days of Stranger Things II, which was super brilliant (though not as brilliant as the first season but still brilliant). But I just finished watching a German series on Flix’o’the Net called Dark. It’s been build as a German Stranger Things, but that’s … Continue reading Dark. Really really.
I am of the generation who saw the original Blade Runner film at the cinema. I went with my brother, and we were both a little obsessed with the world and the characters. To this day, we still quote to each other Roy’s (Rutger Hauer) “Tears in the Rain” speech. Sequels can suck. Like really, … Continue reading I’ve Seen Things You People Wouldn’t Believe
Well I did say I’d review everything. I am an inveterate nail-biter; have been since the age of 5 when I stopped sucking my thumb. While I was once mortified to learn that only a tiny 10% of nail-biters continue into adulthood, I have now decided that as far as bad habits go, it’s a … Continue reading Changing Nail Colour! My Life Was Not Complete!
Oh hell! Just finished watching this on Apple TV. If you loved the book, you’ll love the series. If you’ve never read the book, but you like the idea of genuinely adult (like R-rated, loads of bloody violence, and more than one ACTUAL PEEN) fantasy, then you also will love this. Ian McShane is immensely … Continue reading ‘murican gods: genuine grown-up fantasy
The Break Marianne Keyes It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Keyes. Her books have so much warmth and humour, and I’ve never been disappointed by one. But a few have stood out as clear favourites, and The Break is one of them (fyi, my other favourite is Is Anybody Out There?). I’d go so far as … Continue reading The Break
I am a hopeless Marvel fangirl but even I didn’t think Guardians of the Galaxy was going to make a good movie. Surprise! It did. Sooo good in fact that they made a sequel. This is one of those occasions where the sequel is better than the original. Gone is the whiff of uncertainty, even … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy II
Hello, world. I do find it difficult to write my books, hold down my job, parent my children, and blog, so today I’m just going to let you know that I have a new book out and where you can get it, and give you this link to my Facebook page where you’ll have an … Continue reading Where am I?
Not that explanations are necessary but… I have been quiet before, but this time my inability to post was a result of me really actually truly being incapable. As many of you may know, I am usually quite fit and active (cycling, boxing, lifting weights, pilates) but I was increasingly finding it hard to recover … Continue reading Adventures in hypothyroidism
In 1982, December the 18th to be precise, I went to my first ever rock concert: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts at Festival Hall in Brisbane. I worshipped Joan Jett; she was unconventional and tough and impossibly cool. Joan Jett made my teen years bearable, when my lack of conformity constantly drew out the worst … Continue reading Here’s to Women with Bad Reputations
